TSOT # 508 Flowers

 What’s the saying when life gives you lemons make lemonade. I’ve been having a hard time doing that the last few days. I forgot to finish this post. It doesn’t help that I don’t have any hotspot that I can use for my laptop. It’s hard to get things connected to the Try Stamping site because I’m just using my phone. 

Well all that to say I did make this card for challenge 508 our theme was flowers. You know flowers come in all shapes and sizes, I had just received this new stamp set and wanted to play with it. I think I pretty much followed the sketch -I did not put any thing crossways so that would be the only piece that I may not have added. If you stop by and see my card tell me what you think? What will you do with this sketch and theme? Have a lovely day.

TSOT #507 See through card

 My Internet service my Wi-Fi service it’s all going wonky. Thought I had this all done I do not know where it went but here’s my card to go with the challenge. All I could see was that I was supposed to do a see-through card. I could not see the sketch so I have only followed the technique see-through card.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop - Florals

Oh hello, I'm so happy to be hopping again this month! Thank you for stopping by, I hope you like my project. I decided that our theme was such a good one since Mother's Day is tomorrow, Sunday May 9th, don't most mothers get flowers for Mother's Day, I know I usually do.  My mother has been gone since 2001 and I miss her terribly, wish I could see her smile and experience a hug, there is nothing like a mother's hug, right? I decided to play with a Karen Burniston die called Woven Basket Box Card. I paired it with some dies from her Flower Pot Pop-Up and Stampin' Up dies and punches to make the flowers. I have two daughters-in-law and thought I'd send them each a "pot" since they are the mothers of my wonderful 6 Grandchildren. Then since I'm the care giver for my 97 year old mother-in-law I made her a pot. These pots are wonderful because they will never wilt, they won't make my girl with allergies sneeze, and require no care,  you can ...Leave them sit all week, month, year and they will still look good :0) (well they might need a little dusting.....tee hee)

 I'm sure that everyone in the 'Hop" will have something to inspire you, we hope what we've created will  encourage you to stamp and create something lovely, at least that's what I hope.  It's fun to see what everyone has made but what I really want to do is to inspire you to do something with what you have or maybe to get involved in this wonderful stamping/creating hobby that brings me such joy! 

 Next up on the list - we have 33 participants!!!! is Jill Chapman. Don't think you have to hop all at one sitting, there is a list of everyone at the end of the blog and if you remember who you looked at last you can just click on their name below and the next button will take you back into the list of hoppers.

 Thank you once again for stopping in, please if you have a minute let me know if you like my project, and if you have any questions just leave it in the comments below and I'll try to answer.  
Have a lovely day and if your a mother, a to be mother, a godmother, or even an "animal" mother....
                                                  - Happy Mother's Day from me to YOU.

Elegantly Said

My daughter-in-law’s mother passed away a couple weeks ago. I wanted to send her a card to let her know that I was thinking of her. The sentiment in this Elegantly Said Stamp says IT ALL !! This is a crisscross pocket card that uses only half sheet of card stock. The DSP Is a piece measuring 4 x 5 1/4 and it showcases both sides. I used copper embossing powder on the sentiments and then backed them with coppr foil. I found some ribbon in my stash that looked like it was kind of a copper color so I used it.

TSOT 591. Fun panel card

 Our technique this time is layering. I decided to not follow the sketch and just do some layering. I’m not sure this is what they really me...
